The Ocean Springs School District is located in a suburban community of approximately 18,000 people on the beautiful Mississippi Gulf Coast. Life on the Coast slows down in Ocean Springs where there is time to stroll oak-draped streets and discover secluded beaches. Ocean Springs is a community that embraces the arts and is the home of many local, state, and nationally recognized artists. The city offers a wealth of history, good Southern food, galleries, shops, beautiful bayous, and excellent schools. The district has kept pace with the residential and commercial growth of the Gulf Coast by the leadership of the five members of the board of trustees who work to ensure that every student attends exceptional schools in a nurturing atmosphere and receives instruction from the best available educators.
